Discover it with us!
On October 8th, 1992, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum opened its doors. Now one of the most important art galleries in the capital, it is located in the Palacio de Villahermosa, in the heart of the Art Walk, along with other important galleries.
The museum houses the most important private art collection in Europe, which was gathered for years by Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, and after the renovation of the gallery that included the annexation of two adjacent buildings in 2004, it also houses the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza collection.
Great jewels of Impressionism, German Expressionism, Russian Constructivism, English and American paintings and important names as Picasso, Van Gogh or Monet, are only a brief sample of what you will find.
As we advanced you, the own museum website invites us to visit its rooms online. In this link you will access the permanent collection to see it at your own pace and comfortably from home, accessing detailed information on each work, or if you prefer, from here you can take a virtual tour of the temporary exhibitions.
A very special version awaits you if you have virtual-reality glasses, as you will be able to enjoy a truly immersive experience. After putting your device in the glasses, you will access the menu of temporary exhibitions, as if you were in the own museum.
But there is even more, the museum encourages you to participate from home in the online course 'Luz y color en la pintura. El mito de Venecia' (Light and colour in painting. The myth of Venice). It consists of 9 videoconferences in Spanish that address the importance of colour as a decisive factor in the artistic practice of Western painters.
